Dhammapada Verse 1

I’ve been incredibly busy while also dealing with the possibility of exposing myself to coronavirus as a result of having to personally manage a team of 15 employees. I haven’t had much time for meditation but still manage to get in something everyday. Without a moment to still my heart and feel what’s happening I would be a complete mess.

So, looking for inspiration, I ended up here, at the first verse of the Dhammapada.


  1. “All states of being are determined by mind, it is mind that leads the way”
